Shivayi Law Firm Advises On Protection For Whistleblowers
An employee who reports his or her employer’s illegal conduct or activities is referred to as a “whistleblower.” Common types of illegal conduct reported by employees in Los Angeles include employment discrimination or harassment, unsafe working conditions and consumer fraud.
How Your Employer Is Not Allowed To Retaliate
Both California and federal laws provide protection for whistleblowers under certain circumstances. Typically, your employer cannot take action against you (for example, termination, demotion or reduction in pay) for having reported its illegal conduct in good faith or for participating in a government investigation against the employer.
